dollars are at the heart of it. tax dollars that were given away as part of the obama administration's stimulus plan, money that the government promised would transform our rail system. it was a very ambitious plan, no doubt about it, when it was first announced. the president, vice president, ray lahood, all of the white house announcing a $13 billion plan to bring high-speed rail to america. listen. >> imagine whisking through towns at speeds over 100 miles an hour. walking only a few steps to public transportation. and ending up just blocks from your destination. imagine what a great project that would be to rebuild america. >> that was the idea. sounded great. bullet trains literally whisking passengers between american cities. the president outlining his plan to make it all happen. well, $8 billion in stimulus money to start and $1 billion a year thereafter to match local projects. keeping them honest now. it is now three years later and we can't find any high-speed rail that's actually been built. certainly not on this farmland in california, an area tapped as a high-speed train route. yo

like a whole lot of money for very little improvement. what is the obama administration or transportation department have to say about this? >> well, you know, this was the first project under this high-speed rail initiative that was completed. and when it was completed, ray lahood, the transportation secretary, was out there just praising that, again, that it came in on budget, came in on time. he said it will move more goods more efficiently, create jobs for the economy up in vermont. and it did increase speeds just a little bit. but it did increase speeds. nothing was said about the fact that this is not high-speed rail. >> you say even more money is going to vermont for high-speed rail. why is more money being spent on the project? >> well, they're still working on this same line. basically another $8 million is going to be spent improving the track on this very train route from what is now the end of the line up to canada. eventually they want to reconnect montreal to this line, thinking that somehow or another, that is going to increase the travel along this line. but
